Elle Macpherson, Ben Affleck, Holly Willoughby, Marcia Cross and Serena Williams are jsut a handful of stars that suffer from migraines - plus, they're just a few of the millions that they blight everyday.

Despite the debilitating impact, migraines remain undiagnosed and untreated in at least 50 per cent of patients.

Marcia Cross, the Desperate Housewive actress, explains: "I really watch stress, and my trigger foods, and all the things I need to do to stay Migraine-free. I just cannot stand that pain. For me, I just have to go home and get in a dark room and wait for it to pass. But waiting for it to pass still involves some pain."

Serena Williams says: "You want to just crawl under your bed and stay there. I know it doesn't look like it affected my tennis, but, especially in the sun, playing with a migraine makes it worse. In Australia it's not that easy. I remember playing Martina Hingis in Sydney, and I was just out of it."

Dr Sarah Jarvis, practising GP, media medic and women's health spokesperson, shares some of her simple tips to keep you clear headed, and help you to avoid the common migraine headache triggers.
